Me: JJ? You up?
J: Stop talking! Stop saying a bad word!
Talking about video games ~
J: You just sell a gun.
Me: Mama doesn't like guns. I don't want to talk about them.
J: I know! I will not shoot you!
J: How many sleeps until I eat rainbows?
I'm not really sure how to respond to that?
(9/7) Fourth grade starts today! The twins and I walked C to school this morning, and then hit Zumba. Nanan came over mid-afternoon and hung out with us. Dad grilled up a fantastic dinner to share with her, and then we had movie night. Dad picked the new Jungle Book, which was fantastic! The littles were a little young for it, and ended up going to bed shortly after it started.
(9/8) Dad walked C to school this morning, and then headed out to run the vehicles in for oil changes. The twinsies and I hit Sbux and then we went to the zip-line park. When we were done there, we picked up Dad, and he treated us to lunch at Billie On Burgers. YUM! Dad took J and C for haircuts this afternoon, and D had a meltdown because he wanted one too. His hair is still super short, and I have put the kibosh on hair buzzing til after school pictures! Sarah and I caught a walk this evening after the boys went down. We walked to ice cream, because that's what happens when Sbux is closed. Om nom!
(9/10) I hit the gym by myself this morning, while all the boys stayed home and played video games. Dad ran a bunch of errands after I got home, and we had a lazyish afternoon. C had tryouts this evening, so Dad took him to that, and I had the twinsies. They chose the "Pancake House!!!" for dinner tonight, and then we went to the park to burn off some of that sugar. After baths, D did battle with the doorknob and lost, launching him into major theatrics about NOT being tired, and needing a band-aid for a shoulder bonk... Yeah, about that not being tired bit? He was out in like 2 minutes.
(9/11) C had tryouts this morning, so I took him and his brothers to the arena. C was not at all excited about playing today, and even turned down a donut run in favor of coming home for screen time. He is not my child! His friend called and invited him on a bike ride to McD's later, and he was all in for that though. It worked out well ~ the twinsies and I went to the Lighthouse Festival with Grandma & Granddad, which was more geared for their ages. The grands spoiled us with lunch, rides, and animal pets. When we all got home tonight, we prepped some snacks and had the gaming group over for a fun evening.
(9/12) Work day for Dad and me, school for C, and the twinsies were with Amanda. C had hockey tryouts again tonight. He'll be on the Badgers again this season! Woot woot! I picked up the twins from the arena, and brought them home for some video game time before bed.
(9/13) Work day for Dad and me, school for C, and the twins got to go with Amanda to the park. I had book club with my work ladies tonight, and it was lovely sitting outside and enjoying some vino in the sun.
(9/14) Day off for me, work for Dad, and school for all the boys today! We had our first day back at preschool today. But first we stopped at Grandma's to return her wheelbarrow, and she invited us in for blueberries and whipped cream. YUM! Preschool was lots of fun - the boys jumped right in where we left off last year. I'm really pleased with the growth of all my little men. C has made some huge leaps in independence, and it's a very cool thing to watch.
(9/15) Work day for me, and Dad has the boys. First day of preschool for Dad and the boys together. I'm sure they'll show him how it's done.
